What Goes Around, “Comeys” Around

Liberal Democrats, having come of age in the Sixties and early Seventies – think Hillary Clinton graduating from Wellesley in 1969 and attending Yale thereafter during the most tumultuous campus riots (up until now) – seem to have slipped into their dotage.

Aging, senile senators and creaky congressmen are looking for their Saturday Night Massacre moment now that Pres. Trump has finally fired F.B.I. Director James Comey for his big fail in failing to produce the obvious evidence against Hillary Clinton regarding her leaked e-mails and her culpability in regard to the Clinton Foundation.

The Saturday Night Massacre refers to Pres. Richard Nixon’s orders to fire independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, which led to the resignations of Attorney General Eliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus on Oct. 20, 1973, during the Watergate scandal. Nixon suspected the Democrat Party of accepting foreign campaign donations, which is illegal. A group of Republican Party operatives broke into the Democrat campaign headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., which was also illegal. No evidence was ever brought against the Democrats, but eventually the scandal resulted in the resignation of Nixon as president of the United States.

The Democrats are hoping, on much weaker grounds, that history will repeat itself: a Republican president, suspecting a Democrat candidate of eliciting illegal foreign donations, orders an “illegal” investigation, then tries to cover it up.

Except that Trump hasn’t (so far). He said once he was elected, he would not order an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s alleged misdeeds including the thousands of leaked e-mails indicating that she may be guilty. Maybe he’s changed his mind; let’s hope so.

According to Fox News, on Tuesday, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who came under fire during last year’s campaign for his inept handling of the Clinton e-mail probe — and whose agency has been investigating since before Trump was even nominated as the Republican candidate whether his campaign had ties to Russia.

The president informed Comey in a brief letter that he could not “effectively lead” the bureau and called for “new leadership that restores public trust and confidence” in law enforcement.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president’s decision was based on “the clear recommendations” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The White House made the announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey’s sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week. The director had told congressional lawmakers that Huma Abedin, as a top aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had sent “hundreds and thousands” of emails to her husband’s laptop, including some with classified information.

On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only “a small number” of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices.

But that error was apparently unrelated to the Comey firing. DOJ officials instead cited his handling of the Clinton probe. Comey first ran into problems during the 2016 presidential race when he tried to conclude his investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server system for emails while at the State Department.

He concluded that Clinton, then the Democratic presidential nominee, had not acted criminally with classified emails but said she had been “extremely careless.” He then announced a revived probe regarding the emails and Abedin’s handling of them in the closing days of the race.

Democrats, for their part (possibly to derail Trump’s campaign early in the race and later, to alleviate heat generated by Clinton’s e-mail scandal) have been clamoring for nearly a year about a possible connection between campaign associates and Russia.

The big deal in the Russia “scandal”? One of Trump’s PR men may have served as an image booster for Vladimir Putin.

That’s it. That’s the whole “scandal” in a nutshell. So, of course, Hillary Clinton’s sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium supplies pales in comparison to this earth-shaking revelation. The classified information in the leaked e-mails – which were sent to Anthony the Weener Weiner’s computer – is small potatoes compared to this national security crisis posed by Trump’s campaign.

You might have thought that, well, the guy in the black hat is former Exxon CEO Secretary of State Tillson or now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who held two meetings with the Russian ambassador prior to the election.

But, no. Tillson’s relations with Russia go all the way back to the late 1980s and early 1990s. Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador were hardly back-room deals; Sessions brought the ambassador in to express his displeasure with Russia’s interference in the Middle East.

Convinced that Trump’s tax records would reveal his dastardly dealings, the FBI reviewed his tax records. They could find absolutely no evidence of any business holdings in Russia, no dealings with any company in Russia, no dealings with the Russian government. The only item the investigation turned up was that the Trump-sponsored Miss Universe Pageant was held in Moscow in 2006.

The Miss Universe Pageant. THE MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT?!

We know that the Democrats are really desperate to link Trump with Russia. But a beauty pageant? The Democrats have reached so far that they’ll have to have their suits specially-tailored to fit the stretched-out left arm they’ve been using to try to pin something on the mighty Trump.

Could anything be more ludicrous than the left-leaning Democrat Party and the Marxist Media, which have been in bed with Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists, Maoists, and Trotskyites since the 1930s accusing a successful Capitalist of sleeping with the enemy? Or at least dealing with him?

In the end, Trump’s black hat guy – the villain in the Democrats’ minds – is just some two-bit PR hack writer. The Left seems quite certain that someone helped get Trump elected, that he couldn’t possibly have managed the election on his own. They also believe that his followers are not the majority of Americans. However, a sizeable minority, if not a majority, of Hillary’s followers were not Americans at all.

Clinton was clearly not made for television the way Trump was. The Left can’t quite grasp that theirs was a not-ready-for-prime-time candidate. Videos of her collapsing at the 9/11 Memorial Service in New York City didn’t help her. Neither did then-Pres. Obama whose health care plan was proving ever more unpopular and costly. They couldn’t quite grasp that the sheeple would turn on the sheeple-herders.

The Democrats figure if they could just get some mud on whoever “helped” Trump turn his campaign around – remember, everyone – the Democrats, the Media, even the Republicans – had him in the Loser column – they could discredit Trump himself and maybe add a charge of cover-up as a bonus. They’re even pipe-dreaming of a Nixonian impeachment or resignation.

If they’re looking for a “culprit” who helped Trump turn his image around, they need look no further than the lady at his side, First Lady Melania Trump. Intelligent (she speaks seven languages), sensible, loyal, poised, and beautiful, he didn’t need to hire an image consultant; he was married to one. All he had to do was listen to her – and evidently he did, and won the hearts of the American people and the election.

The Comey story is really quite simple: Trump had enough of Comey’s ineptitude. As president, he had every right to fire him without any investigations into his decision. He knew sooner or later the Media and the Democrats would cry, “Saturday Night Massacre!” and the witch hunt would begin. Still, keeping Comey on was an insult to all the members of the FBI – the rank-and-file who have served our country honorably.

The Democrats are rather like a toothless dog at this point. But they’re counting on an ignorant public to follow their lead in raising the cry for an investigation of Trump before his own FBI director can begin an investigation of Hillary Clinton.

Clinton served (rather dishonorably, it must be noted) on the Watergate Committee years ago. She even tried to claim that Nixon had no right to defend himself. She was summarily dismissed, at last, from the panel, although Nixon was ultimately forced to resign for lying about covering up for the Watergate burglars.

What better justice could we ask for than this: that this president is not investigated for firing an incompetent, partisan director, but instead goes on to appoint an investigator who may just find Clinton guilty as charged.

Hope she hasn’t thrown away her orange jumpsuit.
